For many years Louth was the centre of railway operations in East Lincolnshire and was an important junction on the main line from Boston to Grimsby with branch lines to Mablethorpe and Bardney. It had its own motive power, engineering and signalling departments all based in the town and the railway was the largest employer in the district.
The exhibition will feature a wide range of local memorabilia that has been donated to the Lincolnshire Wolds Railway, along with displays of photographs and story boards illustrating the 123-year history of Louth’s long association with the railway. Subjects will include Louth station and its engine shed, the East Lincolnshire Line, the Mablethorpe Loop and the Bardney branch, Signal Boxes and Signalling, the Steam Railmotors and the bombing of Louth station in World War 2.
To accompany the exhibition, the Lincolnshire Wolds Railway Society has produced a series of budget-priced books on the railways of East Lincolnshire, written by Grimsby author and historian Alf Ludlam, which will be on sale at the museum shop.
